Reorganized Junior High Program: An Evaluation 1971-72. A Title III, ESEA Project.
The evaluation of the first year of the ESEA Title III Reorganized Junior High Program at Jordan and Marshall University Junior High Schools is reported. The product objectives of the program were: (1) increased counselor effectiveness, (2) positive student attitude towards teachers, counselors, and school, and (3) increased parent and student involvement in school. Activities, or process objectives, for the attainment of the product objectives were: workshops, classroom visits, coordination of support services, meeting between counselors and teachers, and information dissemination regarding activities. The counselors and the program were evaluated by the teachers, and student perceptions of the counselor, student attitudes toward school and teachers, and parent and student involvement were obtained. Results of the study showed that teacher opinions of counselor effectiveness were much better than they were the previous year; students at Jordan had somewhat less favorable attitudes toward their counselors and the counseling relationship than did students the previous year; at Marshall University school, more teacher-counselor contacts and more favorable ratings of counselor effectiveness were reported by team teachers than by non-team teachers or by teachers the previous year; team students had more positive attitudes toward school and had more input into class decisions. An appendix provides new student evaluation forms. (For related document, see TM 003 252.) (DB)
